Review by ZACH BROWN

June 21, 2017

What I liked

The drummer was incredible and had a beautiful voice and energy. I would have been pleased with 40 mins of just that.

What I didn't like

Audience couldnt tell if there was expectation to react or not. Was it scripted? If so perhaps work on building audience connection first other wise the work seems self serving.

My overall impression

Seemed a bit formless. It felt as though it was all made up on the spot… which is fine if you have the skills necassary to do audience work and improv. I loved the concept and the music was beautiful… but it just felt too uncontrolled.

To Richard!

A world premiere from Hollywood and Edinburgh Fringe award winner Jessica Durdock Moreno. A white lady and a Latino man cross paths in the woods of Connecticut. Chaos ensues. Hilarity abounds. There may be hugging. Discount code HUG for $10 tickets.

Anna St. Hesia Dreams

Anna is trapped in an anesthesia-related coma. Her only way out is to sink deeper into fantasy – a dark fairytale where people weave dreams into tourist destinations. When reality isn’t worth it, is fantasy the next best thing?
